Iannarelli's studies showed that ear shape can be considered a biometric identifier able to authenticate people as well as more established biometrics like face or voice, for instance. However, very few researches can be found in literature about ear recognition. In most cases techniques already working in other biometric fields, such as PCA (principal component analysis), are applied to ear. Eigen-ears provide high recognition rate only in closely controlled conditions. Indeed, even a slight… CONTINUE READING
